          I was born and raised in Douglasville GA.  I am a graduate of Jacksonville State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Exercise Science and Wellness with minors in Recreation Administration and Physical Education. I started my career at the age of "15" teaching Gymnastics.  I continued to teach throughout college and after completion I became the fitness director at Gold’s Gym along with teaching Group Fitness. I continued to teach Gymnastics part time throughout my career and eventually went full time and taught group fitness part time.   
          I became the Gymnastics Coordinator for Carroll County Recreation in 2012. My passion is to serve children because I love seeing the smiles on their faces when they have accomplished a new skill or overcome a fear. My goal is for all of the young athletes to find a love for a sport and excel to make them have a great experience and learn valuable motor skills. In my free time I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends. I love the beach, lake and the Georgia Bulldogs!
